If you are using McAffee's ePO you can configure all the machines in your network you set there updates from the same place with out having to go round every machine by using an update policy. Click the group of machines and in the left hand pane there should be a policy tab, here you can set up an update policy.

Otherwise you can go round every machine and open up the virus scan console, click tools and go to edit autoupdate repository list, here you can add a unc path for updates and click off the ftp update sites or just delete them.

Forgive my stupidity. I did not quite explain that too well.. I do not have anything setup execpt the clients are running the mcafee enterprise client software on the workstations.. I have yet to install anything on the server.

Could you elaborate on that a bit more for me?

McAfee virus scan 8.0i installs onto windows server just as it would onto a workstation.  Make sure you get the patch too

Not sure how it sets up on a server, same as on a work station I guess. To get all the machines to get the updates from the server just follow as I explained before and to get the server to retrieve the updates I use a scheduled task to run a bat file which then runs the ftp command pointed to a script for it to follow, details below,

Bat file
---------------------------------------------
@echo off
y:
ftp -i -s:ftpscript.txt
pause
exit
----------------------------------------------
y: is where the dats will be stored,


ftp script
----------------------------------------------
open ftp.nai.com
anonymous
youremail@address.com
cd /pub/antivirus/datfiles/8.x
binary
hash
mget *
quit
----------------------------------------------
which will then download the files

There is no reason to set up workstations to retrieve updates from the internet.

You can use the policy orchestrator to deploy udates to your workstations.  You install this on a server and it pulls the updates and acts as a repository.

Ok, I have some netware servers , I went to the site to D/L and these are the progs I can get..

Alert Manager v4.7.1
AutoUpdate Architect v1.1.2
CleanBoot 1.0
Common Management Agent v3.5
ePO Agent for NetWare
Installation Designer v7.1.0
Installation Designer v8.0
NetShield for Netware v4.6.0
NetShield for Netware v4.61
NetShield for Netware v4.62
ProtectionPilot 1.1
VirusScan Command Line Scanners
VirusScan Enterprise v7.1.0
VirusScan Enterprise v8.0i
VirusScan Multiplatform v4.5.1

From the sounds of it, I want to get ePO Agent for NetWare and set that up? Then I can somehow have the clients get the updates from my netware server?

Dale_GishCommented:
install the ePO and install the ePO agent for Netware.  Once configured, it will push policy settings to your clients.  They will automatically look for a repository on the network before going out to the internet to retrieve an update.  I can assist you with setting up the ePO if you need help.

Looks like the ePO is what I need, I printed out the readme.txt of it. I'll be doing that. In your post above you make it sound like there are 2 things I need to install but from my list above I only see 1 possible download.


<<install the ePO and install the ePO agent for Netware.>>

What is the ePO itself? I see ePO agent but no other ePO.

Dale_GishCommented:
EPO is ePolicy Orchestrator.  It's the software that allows you to manage security from one centralized console/server.  It allows you to download and push out updates, enforce protection policies, monitor system security, lots of stuff.

How do I install that before installing the ePO Agent then, I guess is the question I have. I knew what ePO was by reading the readme.txt I printed out (that I said in my above post) I just read your post and it says install the ePO then install ePO agent after ePO is installed. I don't have any download for an ePO other than just the agent itself.


<<install the ePO and install the ePO agent for Netware.>>
that leads me to believe I need to install 2 things. Are there 2 things I need to install?
I ask because the post I have above shows all available downloads and there is no ePO, only the ePO Agent.

I'm trying to explain it so you see where I am coming from. Sorry if i'm coming off stupid.
